Billboard Reminds Beliebers That Justin Bieber Has Always Been Shady AF

Justin Bieber fishes for answersIn light of recent events involving Justin Bieber and his fans, Billboard decided to share a throwback video of the singer answering some questions. In the video shared Tuesday morning, Justin answers questions about his favorite Disney movie, what inspires him and the biggest misconception about him, all of which get some serious side-eye.

“My favorite animated Disney movie would have to be ‘Lady and the Tramp’ or ‘Bambi,'” Justin says, using one of the most emotional animated films in history. When it comes to his inspirations, the singer didn’t hesitate to say Selena Gomez plays a big role in his music–a fact that he has previously mentioned during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” even naming the songs off of his “Purpose” album that are about her.

The true kicker came when Justin replied to a question about the biggest misconception about him. “Probably that I’m a jerk,” Justin says. “I’m not that guy. I’m a nice guy.” We’re certain some people would disagree, especially after video caught the singer telling a fan she make him sick. If Justin’s recent encounters with fans aren’t proof positive that the singer may not be as nice as he thinks, then all of his actions in 2016 definitely do.

Watch the 2015 video of Justin’s answers below.

Perrie Edwards Rage Quits Little Mix’s Kazoo Karaoke Game

Perrie Edwards Rage Quits Little Mix's Kazoo Karaoke Game featureAll four members of Little Mix stopped by Billboard’s studios recently. As they continue the “Dangerous Woman Tour” with Ariana Grande, the girls took a quick time out to play a game with one of the publication’s hosts. Kazoo karaoke was on tap for the group, which was split up into teams of Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards on one side and Leighe-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson on the other.

Pulling from a fishbowl of touch- and feeling-theme songs, the two teams went back and forth humming the songs on kazoos while the other duo guessed. Unfortunately for Jade, Perrie wasn’t exactly pulling her weight. After struggling to get any sound out of her instrument, Perrie gave up and threw it to the floor.

Despite her struggles, she and Jade still managed to beat Jesy and Leigh-Anne in the game. In the process, she created another classic Little Mix moment.

Demi Lovato Just Won’t Shut Up About Her Grammy Nomination

Demi Lovato talks grammy morningIf you haven’t heard by now, Demi Lovato has been nominated for her first Grammy award. The singer is up against some stiff competition like Adele and Ariana Grande, so her chances of actually winning are slim. That hasn’t stopped her from talking about her nom every chance she gets.

In a new video shared by Billboard, Demi is still talking about her nomination and what happened the morning the announcements were made. “The way that I found out was getting a phone call really early in the morning and my assistant came in and said ‘Phil has to talk to you,” Demi said.  After learning of the nomination it seems as if Demi, like everyone else, couldn’t believe “Confident” was up for “Best Pop Vocal Album” either. “I literally shot up and said ‘Shut the f*ck up,'” she added.
